Please RSVP to your host so they can plan accurately and keep you informed
of any details. And please let your host know if you could help set-up or clean-up.

Our community has adopted the tradition of celebrating the changes of the

seasons. These are called Nyida days, from the Tibetan words nyima ('sun'),

and dawa ('moon'). Nyida days occur on or near the days of the equinoxes and

solstices. All four nyida days are regarded as family-oriented celebrations.

 

The Harvest of Peace is our time to enjoy the equinox together.
